In the absence of lead scorer Jean-Pierre Nsame, Cameroon-eligible forward Jordan Theo Siebatcheu had an outing to remember this Saturday in match-day 13 of the Swiss Super League championship.
Suspended Jean-Pierre Nsame missed the game giving a chance for a rare start to Siebatcheu while Ngamaleu settled for a spot on the bench.
The forward scored twice in the see-saw encounter but his goals were unfortunately not enough as visiting FC Lugano snatched a point from the fixture.
Siebatcheu put the host ahead barely 19 minutes into the game off an assist from Miralem Sulejmani.
Slovenian midfielder Sandi Lovric leveled scores nine minutes later but there was more to come.
Siebatcheu doubled his tally for the game and season in the 37th minutes through a perfectly executed spot-kick.
Gerardo Soane’s men took that lead to the break.
25 minutes upon resumption for the second segment, forward Mattia Bottani restored parity again by scoring for FC Luzern.
That goal amongst other reasons pushed coach Gerardo to introduce Nicolas Ngamaleu.
Both sides had some chances in the second segment of the game but poor finishing was their undoing.
The visitors finally left the Stade de Swiss with a point as the game ended on a 2-2 score.
Young Boys are on the road in match-day 13 of the championship. They will face third-seeded Saint Gallen on Tuesday.
Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu is of Cameroon descent but holds a French passport.
The 24-year-old has scored twice and assisted in 11 games in the competition this season.
